About Wendy

I've been teaching private vocal instruction since 2003, and opened my own studio in 2008. I love helping people find their true, authentic voice, which I feel is essential not only for singers but many other people as well! Singing is a great joy, and the voice is one of our primary modes of expre

IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A MUSIC TEACHER- just take the dive and book with Monica!!! She is the absolute best. I am so self-conscious about my singing voice and Monica put me at ease immediately. She is so approachable and friendly. I've been in lessons for a few months and have already learned to so much that I can hear it in my voice. She is the absolute best.

I teach singers of all genres (country, classical, jazz, pop, bluegrass, rock…) to sing with confidence and freedom!

I have a M.M. in vocal performance from the Chicago College of Performing Arts and have extensive vocal training. I teach an open throat technique (appoggio) that allows the singer to sing with freedom, and access their entire range evenly. I also work with students to develop style, interpretation, languages, and acting ability. I have extensive stage experience and teach my students how to have confidence while portraying a character on stage.

"This was my first lesson and I have to admit, I was really nervous and I didn't know what to expect. However, it turned out I had nothing to be nervous about! Carissa is so nice and once the lesson started, I felt comfortable talking to her and doing the scene readings with her. I had a lot of fun during my first lesson and I can't wait until the next one :)"

"I am about to enter high school and I wanted to improve my acting skills in preparation for my goal to perform in school plays. I came to Shauna to learn acting techniques and skills to improve my acting abilities. I learned so much from Shauna. I looked forward to my weekly acting lessons and the preparation that went into each lesson. Shauna helped me feel at ease, even when doing something new and challenging. She encouraged me to reach outside my comfort zone and the exercises helped me really understand acting. This has been a great experience and I look forward to working with Shauna in the future!"

He’s fun, flexible, and genuinely cares about his students’ success. Super happy with my decision :)"
